Well, that was interesting…

So, it’s been a kinda crappy time at work. I’m pulling unbelievably long hours, the co-workers are being lazy, unmotivated and selfish pains in the asses, and I may be getting a bit sick on top of that. Suffice to say, I wasn’t in the best of moods.

But right now, I am listening in rapt attention to a tenant in our building’s laundry room (we live directly above it) who not only does not know how to use her indoor voice, but is having a spectacular conversation on her cell phone. The things I’m overhearing…

“You should have been there. It was incredible. And I mean that in the sense of beyond credible. I mean literally. The prayer circle was so strong, you would have felt the overflow just being in the room…

“Well, according to the new list released from Homeland Security, #3 of those to be looked out for are Evangelical end of times Christians…

“Oh, you have have the number for Homeland Security? I had no idea… you’ll have to give it to me… so I went on to think who else is on that list: me, you, Gloria, Maria, John, Pastor Watson, Dobbson, Billy Graham…

“Well, I didn’t want to say anything slanderous, but she looks like a lesbian to me…

“You know that Perez Hilton? He called her a slanderous word that got bleeped out. But you know, she [Ms. California] has been getting so many calls from young people thanking her for bringing them to Jesus. Did you see her? She’s a beautiful young woman. Although when she came out in that bathing suit… it was a pretty skimpy 2-piece. I prayed for her.”

Now, despite being an atheist, I am all for religious freedom. A person should believe what works for them. I respect that. That said, there are clearly some nutty people out there.

On top of it all, the woman saying all this is the same one that my BF and I assumed was a lesbian herself. She totally looks like one. Were we dead wrong, or is this really a lesbian evangelical? Doesn’t seem like a common occurrence, but who knows. In any case, it certainly entertained me. Although I’m definitely going to avoid this woman the next time I see her, that’s for sure. Unless she’s on her cell phone.
